Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

5,014 reviews
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

Doge's Palace /Palazzo Ducale was finished in 1340, built in the Venetian Gothic style, main landmark of Sn Marco and the whole city. Residence of the ruling Doge of the Venetian Republic, it has been imitated many places the world over, including Glasgow Green. Scotland. It has been modified rebuilt and extended since the 14th century and 2023 is the centenary of its opening as a museum. We stayed about 2 hours in total, could have dwelt a lot longer but on our first 4 days 3 nights visit to Venice had only time to sccrath the surface. Permanent exhibitions and visiting ones, in 2019-2020 from Tizianio to Reubens was showing, many works by Dutch and Flemish rinascnte painters

We visited the palace in September in between European lock-downs so it was quite easy to access and relatively empty. A wonderful experience for us as it was not crowded and we could stay as long as we liked or as little as we liked in the various rooms and courtyards. There is a free check for bags and backpacks that you have to use if you go upstairs. Now that I am a 'senior (over 65) I was able to take advantage of the reduced price of 13 euros as well. We didn't bother to reserve or pay any kind of premium price, just waited in a short queue for about 15 minutes. You really need to take your time here and let the history and atmosphere sink in.

Really pretty interior and lots of information available or to read in each room. We booked online whilst in the queue so we could go in the shorter queue! Loved it in here. Took us a while to get around as it’s so big.. Enjoyed reading the history in most the rooms. Would have loved a 1-1 tour instead of reading it all. Only revised you could do this once we were inside and saw somebody else having a private tour. Deffo worth a visit!

due to COVID, we took a tour through the palace, which we will never forget. we were the only ones in this huge palace - no groups, no wiating time, desinfection in each room - and there is a lot of rooms! Time to study the history, the paintings, the spirit of the former world power.... just incredible!

Due to covid19, there are no audio guides (which is understandable), but having only 1 information board in each room is not making it better, since then everyone is standing in front and it's difficult to read. Many interesting details about the Palace were not even communicated, we read them by ourselves on Wikipedia. All in all, there should be a better concept - like for example an app.
